Sometimes when I feel as if I am losing my way it can take a tiny thing to put me back on track. After organising the show at Tower Hamlets last year, when I was feeling pretty empty, a friend and I walked into a charity shop in Richmond. She found a book for me on hysteria. I read a few words and immediately I felt my focus returning, thank goodness, and with it my energy. Yesterday I continued with monotypes on lovely thin Gampi paper. Thinking about my images existing as they do in such a thin space, it never occurs to me to indicate that they exist in a pictorial space, because to try to indicate that, to create them a room or a corner of a forest for example, would not be true to them. They exist in a thin place, and come from a thin place. They are as a sliver of cells, such as you might see beneath a microscope.
